If the Los Angeles Rams can’t end their winning streak in Week 7 of the 2019 NFL season, they can kiss their playoff hopes goodbye. Look for the defending NFC champs to pick up a victory Sunday afternoon when they visit the Atlanta Falcons.

L.A. is a three-point road favorite in Atlanta, according to the latest betting line at OddsShark. The over/under of 54.5 is the week’s highest.

The Falcons can’t seem to stop anyone in 2019. They are the perfect opponent for an offense that’s trying to get back on track.

Atlanta is 27th in opponents’ yards per play, putting them 18 spots behind Los Angeles. Only the winless Miami Dolphins have surrendered more points than the Falcons.

A 24-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles was Atlanta’s best defensive effort of the season. The Falcons picked up their only win this year as a banged-up Carson Wentz lost his top two receivers early in the first half.

Even the Tennessee Titans scored 24 points in Atlanta. The Titans are 28th in scoring, and they just benched Marcus Mariota in favor of Ryan Tannehill. That didn’t stop Mariota from throwing three touchdown passes and posting a 129.7 passer rating in a comfortable 14-point victory.

In their four other losses, Atlanta has given up at least 27 points each game. The Falcons are in the middle of a freefall, having surrendered 87 total points in the last two weeks.

An NFL-low five sacks have allowed opposing quarterbacks to post a 119.2 passer rating. Atlanta picked off Carson Wentz twice. The Falcons don’t have a single interception in five of their six games.

Jared Goff has struggled behind poor offensive line play. Only Baker Mayfield and Jameis Winston have thrown more interceptions.

Luckily for Goff and the Rams, the Falcons don’t put pressure on the quarterback or intercept passes.

Matt Ryan is tied with Goff for third in the league with seven interceptions. His 300-yard plus, three-touchdown performances haven’t been enough to overcome a terrible defense in recent weeks. When the quarterback throws costly interceptions, the Falcons don’t stand a chance.

Los Angeles should win this one going away.

Prediction: Los Angeles over Atlanta, 34-24
